General Petition Information

Abstract:George T. Martin, the guardian of Catherine and John Robinson of Caroline County in Maryland, explains that his wards inherited two young slaves from their grandfather, Ralph Robinson of Sussex County, Delaware, in 1831. Stating that said slaves "are now in the State of Delaware & are now of little or no service to the legatees," Martin believing "it to be for the interest of the legatees that the above named slaves (Jude & William) should be brought over into the State of Maryland where the legatees reside." He therefore asks that a law be passed "authorising him to bring over into the State of Maryland the slaves mentioned in this petition."
